I am new to this forum. I am 27, was diagnosed with Type one at 21. The last 6 years have not been far from ideal. I got married two and 1/2 years ago. We decided the beginning of the year that we were going to start trying to conceive during the summer. Those plans came to a crashing halt when I visited my endo on July 5th. She told me my A1C was 8.9 and that she would NOT recommend me get pregnant until I was at 6. I asked her how long that should take and she said a year! I was devastated. I was planning to stop my BC that month.
I worked hard to make changes in my life over the past few months since then. I wen tot the doctor Mid Septemebr and my A1C went down to 7.8. I also got on the pump after that appointment. I go in again next tuesday to see how this pump has affected my A1C.
I want to get pregnant NOW. Put I am terrified that I my BC will hurt the baby and that I will end up feeling guilty forever if something happens because I didn't wait. I also feel like getting down to a 6 will take me a small eternity. I'm so sad about it. I want a baby so bad not..and to add to it, so many friends are having babies, my family is waiting. They actually think I'm pregnant now because I gained weight after getting my BCs under better control. I'm just frustrated.
How long did it take some of you to get your A1C to tight control?
Has anyone had a healthy baby with an elevated A1C?
What are some tips to getting my A1C down at super speed?
Thanks in advance
